In our experience, most people who have weight reduction surgery have already tried some, or all, of the other options available to them. If you’ve tried to lose weight through a healthy lifestyle and diet, but haven’t been successful, weight loss surgery could change your life for the better.
Bariatric surgery has been shown to have some remarkable results and long-lasting beneficial effects. It can have benefits other than weight loss, such as remission from type 2 diabetes or a reduced risk of hypertension, sleep apnoea, and heart disease as well as some cancers. And since your mobility usually improves as a result of weight loss, it'll have a positive impact on your physical and mental wellbeing.
But it’s important to remember that bariatric surgery isn’t a quick fix – it’s a serious consideration. Weight loss surgery is effective when paired with a commitment to a lifelong weight management program to ensure that losing and maintaining your weight loss is realistic.
Everybody’s circumstances are different so, before considering private weight loss surgery, you should speak to a specialist to see if it’s the right course of action for you.
